    I can't seem to get this working. I say "send text to..." then the name, followed by the message but it only seems to recognize the message, not the name. It completely skips the name box. If I go back and click the name box and try and say the name again, it doesnt recognize it either. Do i hav to setup some voice recognition commands prior to using talk to text? I didnt see an option for that.Anyone else hav a similar problem?

    Are you using the name and location, as in "Text Steve, mobile, How are you today?"

    VLingo needs that format.

    Yea, I've tried it every way possible. I even re-watched the help video with that kid talking about how to talk to text, and still nothing.

    Uh... I didn't think I needed another app for that. The help video never mentioned any additional app for that.

    For me its totally hit or miss as to whether it works or not but I only have to say the destination ie mobile or home if the contact has multiple #s

    I hate the imbedded app because it only worked when it wanted to. Look at Vlingo in the Market. It's free. I know that's not what you wanted to hear, but you have to do what you have to do.
    I am pretty new to Android, but have spent lots of hours playing with my D2.

    But does it atleast try and put a contact, even if its wrong? Mine doesn't, it totally just skips over the contact. Sometimes it will just spell out the contacts name in the message box! Im like... dam, it understands the name!

    Just downloaded Vlingo. Seems to work pretty well.

    I speak basic HillBilly so it will be a learning curve.

    Dam! I got vlingo and still can't get it to pull up the right contact. I was able to get one, but that's about it.
